More than 200 m of germanosilica optical fiber is manufactured with an internal wire electrode running parallel to the core. In this new fabrication method the wire is integrated into the fiber during the draw process. This length of fiber is an order of magnitude longer than other previously reported fibers with internal electrodes. The optical loss is less than our measurement floor of 0.5 dB/m at 1550 nm. A 0.9-m section of the fiber is thermally poled, inducing a permanent second-order… CONTINUE READING
